Mr. Leighton
Technology Teacher and ITRT
I have been associated with education for over 30 years, working at RU and RCPS.
I taught 4th grade for 7 years at Belle Heth, STEM for 4 years at Belle Heth, and this will be my 4th year year teaching technology classes at Dalton.
I committed myself to graduate from James River High School, Dabney Lancaster Community College (AS), Virginia Tech (BS in Computer Science), and Radford University (MS in Educational Technology).
I like working at Dalton because it is small. We have the chance to know each of the students and build relationships. All the staff works together and helps each other. We are a family!
I was inspired by my parents to continue my education and become a first generation college graduate. They supported me in school and life, supporting me no matter what. When I worked at RU and got my MS, Dr. Gary Ellerman was my mentor and helped me along my journey so much - now a life long friend.
The greatest part of the Radford School Community is the togetherness we have and our goal of meeting the needs of our students and their families.
I look forward to working with you this year!
